This Blog about Bell’s Palsy
On New Year’s Day 2013 I was diagnosed with Bell’s Palsy following my admission to Accident & Emergency department with a suspected stroke. Although the care I received during my 3+ days in hospital was excellent, the information I was given during my stay and on discharge was patchy at best. I wanted to provide a real time record of my progress to hopefully a complete recovery that could be useful for other sufferers and friends & family of sufferers to help them understand and deal with the condition. I found out that my great neice had also suffered from Bell’s Palsy a number of months ago and with the kind permission of her month and grandmother they have provided further photos and information on Bell’s Palsy in children.
A Bell’s Palsy Timeline
I hope that you find the website useful and it is a work in progress – I am putting the blog live on day 5 of my experience – but I am going to back date posts from my time in hospital when starting a blog wasn’t the first thing on my mind! I intend to post photos of my condition and how it changes – hopefully for the better – over the coming days, weeks and months. Please do comment if you can contribute to the information and discussion.
Thanks for reading,
